WcDonald’s, Anime Fans’ Favourite Fictional Restaurant, is Brought to Life

For years, anime fans have been making McDonald’s-inspired “WcDonald’s” restaurants a part of anime’s most memorable movies and shows. Now, in collaboration with some of the biggest names in anime, WcDonald’s will make the move from fiction to real life. Beginning in Canada on Feb. 27, McDonald’s is building on their fans’ vision and imagination by unleashing the WcDonald’s universe in restaurants and beyond, with a special McNuggets® sauce, manga-inspired packaging, and episodic shorts.

Chili WcDonald’s Sauce

Animate your taste buds with a new sauce that packs a punch, Savoury Chili WcDonald’s Sauce, available for a limited time at participating restaurants. Mirroring the bold, dynamic spirit of your favourite anime heroes, the sauce pairs perfectly with an order of “WcNuggets” or on the side of any go-to menu items.

Manga Packaging Designed by Artist/Illustrator Acky Bright

Custom WcDonald’s packaging will take you deeper into the world of WcDonald’s with every meal. For a limited time, fans will receive manga-inspired take out bags featuring WcDonald’s Crew characters at participating restaurants sketched by Acky himself.

Official WcDonald’s Anime

Four episodic shorts, developed in partnership with Studio Pierrot, will plunge you into the flavourful world of WcDonald’s anime.
